"Children do not need to learn to be better, told what to do or shown how. If they are given access to enough of the world, they will see clearly enough what things are truly important to themselves and to others, and they will make for themselves a better path into that world than anyone else could make for them."

                                       Games/Electives

We are a family of gamers! My kids love games of all kinds video, card, and board. So much in fact that my daughter insisted about a year ago that we have a "Family Game Night". I thought it was a great idea so most Thursday nights you will find the 5 of us gathered around the kitchen table laughing, and snacking and getting our game on. My children have learned alot from games. My middle son learned his numbers by playing Uno, all the kids got better at adding and subtracting by playing games like Monopoly, and my daughter has learned a tremendous amount of her spelling and all of her dictionary skills by playing Scrabble. 

This is also the headings page for electives. In this instance I will consider an elective to be most any activity that would be a great learning tool but doesn't quite fit in any of the other catagories at this time. This could include but not limited to things like photography, home economics, or woodworking.
